Protests

There are big immigrations related protests/rallies being conducted across the nation today, and I'd like to comment on them for a bit. In general, immigrants, both legal and illegal, are an asset to this country, Nonetheless, illegal immigrants are criminals who should not be given guest worker status. First of all, these people are not guests; guests are invited, these people aren...

"Sadness is for poor people"

I have a pair of tests today and a pair of presentations. The presentations are for my thesis, one to each of my advisors. The tests are for American government and Arabic. Over the past few weeks, my work habits have changed, such that I don't feel nearly as much pressure and I'm much more confident when I...

Buying and Selling

Last night was fairly interesting. To start off, I went to the Plan II date auction. I sat next to my friend Bruno, who is kind of like Mr. T, except he has a full 'fro instead of a mohawk, he's short, not all that muscular, and gets way more bitches than Mr. T could ever hope. Bruno and I were...

Pay

I finally made quota at my job ($135 in a four hour canvassing period). Then I quit. I've had reservations both about the message that they send to people and they collect donations. Specifically, I don't agree with this scare-mongering tactic they use of equating Texas' lead in the nation in mercury emissions with an imminent threat to people's health. Additionally...

Homeless

I signed a 9 month lease back in August . Those nine months will be up on June 1st, at which time I may or my not have a place to sleep. It breaks down like this: My sister has a two room apartment with one room currently vacant. She wants to move into my apartment because she hasn't found anyone to rent the...

Back on the Job

Today was my first day back after my abysmal showing on Friday, and I did much better this time around. I got my first $60 donation today, and I collected 16 letters to the Leg. I only had a total of two contributors, though. Part of the problem is that so many of the people among whom we canvass are poor...

Presentation

I gave my thesis presentation today. For my degree plan, the thesis presentation is more of a progress report than anything else. It went off without a hitch, and now I'm kicking back and preparing to do some more homework for class on monday.

Beggar

I'm not sure if I mentioned this before, but I got a job. I work with a lobbying group called Clean Water Action. We "canvass" neighborhoods. We're the irritating people who ring at your door and beg for your money, and then we pretend it's ok when you tell us you don't have any money to give but you'd...

Acceptance

I had another therapy session and my counselor suggested I go to the Career Counseling center. I really don't know what I want to be. That wasn't a problem when I first got to college; everyone says "Don't worry, you'll figure it out." Well, I'm almost out of college and I still haven't figured it out. I've...

oh, i didn't realize it was like THIS when i commented in the group....

hey, i dropped out of an ivy league graduate program b/c it was really NOT WHERE MY HEART IS, and dealt with all the family disappointment, etc., and came around to feeling really supported anyway. i definitely realized that i was groomed for that elite school trajectory, but it was not my true desire. it is for some people. not me, though.

now i work for free on a community garden project (that i LOVE) and i'm in a yoga teacher training program (which i also LOVE) and i never gave that school another glance.

oh, yeah. and i strip for the money. and, although i don't LOVE it, i really like pole dancing and i think it's a pretty honest living.....

seems like we have a few things in common, eh?

It will come to you eventually- what you want to do that is.

I just turned 26 and I've figured out what I want to do. So I've decided to get pro-active and return to college. I guess the good thing is you have your degree or will be getting it soon and that will help you no matter what you choose to be. smile

Recovery

This is my first post in quite some time, and while I'm not promising to start updating every day, I will try to update at least once a wake, for all my fans out there.

I suffered a slight nervous breakdown a few weeks ago. I didn't leave my apartment for about a week, and eventually some concerned friends forced me to...

Dad's Birthday

My dad's birthday was today, but we celebrated last night. My sister and I got him a copy of the documentary "The Smartest Guys in the Room" and a bottle of Dewar's aged 12 years. He's a big Dewar's fan.

Nobody Fucks with Jesus

Golly, it has been a long time since i updated. Over a month, and my how some things have changed. I could bore you with a rundown of all the things that have happened, but I won't. I'll stick to the highlights:
1. My girlfriend is officially an alcoholic. Went to her first AA meeting last night and everything...
